A Good Quality, Attractive, Late 18th Century English George III Period Oak Dresser Base, Having Well Figured Top Over Three Drawers With Crossbanded Decoration And Replacement Brass Handles, Over Elegant Shaped Frieze And Square Tapered Legs.
A fabulous example of an 18th century dresser base, which is suitable for a huge variety of different spaces and uses around the home, both modern and historic. It would work wonderfully in a hallway along the wall, or similar on a landing, or alternatively as a sideboard in a kitchen or dining room, or even on the back of a settee in a more formal room. We have even known people to use them upstairs in a bedroom when they have a large amount of wall space to fill.
There is very little damage to speak of, certainly nothing visually unappealing, or which causes a structural problem and although the brass handles are replacements they look more than acceptable and actually sit very nicely on the piece indeed. They have clearly been in situ for a very long time indeed. Its also worth noting that the dresser retains a lovely rich, warm colour and patina.
As with all items which we offer for sale this dresser base has been inspected and attended to in our workshops by our trained antique furniture restorers, where it has recieved a natural wax polish to ensure it is ready for immediate placement within the home environment.
